Fancy Arle

Arle has recently developed a “Fancy Nancy” obsession.  She received the original Fancy Nancy book as a birthday gift from one of our neighbors, and it has quickly become a favorite.

For those of you unfamiliar with Nancy, she’s  a little girl who loves all things fancy, but her family members are all a bunch of plain-janes.  Her mission is to teach her family how to become fancy.

Arle has decided she wants to help Nancy make the world a fancier place and now declares all sorts of things “fancy.”  When I put bows in her hair, she says, “Ooooh, that’s fancy!”

When she wore her tutu to church yesterday, she declared, “It’s like Nancy!”

When I tuck her in at night, I’ve started saying, “Goodnight, Fancy Arle.”   She replies back with, “Goodnight, Fancy Mommy.”

Last week she was digging around in our coat closet and decided to dress fancy.  She found a hat and a couple of scarves that helped achieve the look she was going for.  She asked for some helping getting the scarves tied just right, then topped the ensemble off with her fabulously-fancy sunglasses.  She was instantly transformed into “Fancy Arle.”

Here’s the final product:

    My “bestie” had a little girl who is 3 months younger than Jacob and ever since I discovered “Fancy Nancy” my mom and I have bought Jenna (named after yours truely) something “FN” for every b-day and Christmas. Jenna loves it! You should also check out “Gigi God’s Little Princess” they are a line of christian books with the same idea. They are fancy AND have a great message!
